WETLAND WILDFLOWERS: Ingeniously Adapted to Life with Wet Feet
Life in abundance thrives in watery places – marshes, swamps, ponds and more. Robust yet delicately beautiful, wetland wildflowers surmount challenging conditions, thanks to air bladders, floating leaves and other tricks. UWO botanist Jane Bowles reveals their strategies and their world.

Feburary 16
Ivan Listar, London's Urban Forester and member of ReForest London's Amazing Tree Quest Committee, will speak on the results of the Amazing Tree Quest and other facts about our urban forest, including results from a recent tree survey.

“THE COVES” OF LONDON: A Secluded Natural Gem
The quiet oxbow ponds and wetlands of The Coves Environmentally Significant Area are remnants of an ancient meander of the Thames. Jaclyn Goodwillie, of Friends of the Coves Subwatershed, invites us inside for a peek into this oasis of wildlife in south London.

This fantastic series of talks is sponsored by the McIllwraith Field Naturalists and the London Public Library.
